Lonely Girl

LP (Item 34379) Liberty, 1956 — Condition: Very Good
Looking like she does on the cover, it's hard to imagine Julie London being a lonely girl – as she's very seductively posed, with that slinky bare shoulders look that no doubt helped many of her early Liberty sides sell so well! But apart from the cheesecake, the record's one of Julie's perfect late 50s sides for Liberty – spare, moody, and very smoky – all set to mellow accompaniment, and backed by some nice guitar work by Al Viola. Tracks are short and sad, and titles include "Fools Rush In", "What'll I Do", "Lonely Girl", "When Your Lover Has Gone", and "Mean To Me".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono turquoise label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam, small sticker remnants, some surface wear and aging, and some unglueing at the corners of the front paste-on.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

I Miss You So
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good
A beautiful title for a beautiful record – one that sums up the subtle sense of sadness that makes the work of Chris Connor so great!

Dinah Washington

Back To The Blues
Roulette, 1962. Very Good
A bit different than some of Dinah Washington's other 60s work for Roulette – a set that's not entirely back to the blues promised in the title, but one that's definitely got a strong bluesy undercurrent! The backing's, by Fred Norman, aren't nearly as lush as on other Roulette sessions ... LP, Vinyl record album
